This is the terrifying moment a man who claimed to be able to control crocodiles appears to be dragged under the water to his death by one of the beasts.

The man, Suprianto, was seen paddling in the water before appearing to be pulled down into the water with a splash.

He had been swimming in the river as part of the search for a teen who had disappeared in the body of water the day before, Jakarta local news reported.

He had been chanting mantras as he swam in the water in Kutai Kartanegara, East Kalimantan, an Indonesian province on Saturday.

The body of the Shaman, and that of the missing teen, were found the next day.

Kutai Kartanegara Police Chief Fadillah Zulkarnaen told Detik: “We have recovered the two (bodies) on Sunday.

“The shaman (Suprianto) was found floating in Muara Jawa at 9:40pm. His body is still whole.”

He added: “I think he was dragged by a croc under the water and then ran out of oxygen. From the pictures I’ve seen, his body is still intact, his arms and legs are still there.”

Witnesses had tried to search for the man after he disappeared but were unsuccessful.

It is the second crocodile attack in the area in the past few months.
